Hi ,

It is the WRT32X.

Any idea ?


Hi Xavier this is the Deauth that is happening when an android device is flooding the network with MDNS traffic. MDNS is only sent out at the basic rate it was overloading the TX and RX queues of the router. The firmware we have up now should resolve it. Are you still seeing it using the latest one that I posted on the first page here?

"The worst part of this is all of the D-bags blaming Lucas/Linksys for the problems" - no, the worst part that Linksys will stop fixing their router and will start blaming "Oh, it's all Google's fault". I rebooted yesterday router and this morning it just stopped opening internet pages until another reboot. Maybe something wrong with Android devices, but it shouldn't put router to its knees.


Thanks for the input Vlad. It might help for you to share what router you have or provide some additional detail though Smiley Happy

My issue described in https://community.linksys.com/t5/Wireless-Routers/WRT-1200AC-and-Killer-E2200-network-adapter-issue/...

Right now I bought Intel CT ethernet card and trying to check is it Killer Networks E2200 specific issue or not.

Re: WiFi Drops and Disconnects with Android Devices on your network.

I have an E3000 router that just started resetting itself randomly in the last week. I've updated to the latest firmware but the problem continues. We have an Android phone connected to the wifi network but I'm having a hard time confirming this is what is causing the problem. I do not see Chromecast or Google Home apps on the phone and going to the Play Store shows no updates for any apps on the phone.

 

For now, I'm going to keep the phone off the network to see if the problem ever happens even with the phone not connected. Any other suggestions on how to pinpoint the cause of the resets? Any chance a Kindle on the network could be doing something similar to the reported Android issue?

Re: WiFi Drops and Disconnects with Android Devices on your network.

Google pushes background system updates like crazy. Seems since late last year the new play services run a lot more background services that have been effecting how my streaming functions. Each update clears up some of the issues, but am almost ready to push my backup play services frome last year.

I fixed my random drop off issues, by changing some android settings and advanced features on my router.

These issues are still present on my WRT32X.  While they are non-existant on my Netgear R7000 and R7800 routers.

 

How come Netgear can fix it, but Linksys can't?

Re: WiFi Drops and Disconnects with Android Devices on your network.

Android - Build.prop  Add a new entry called wifi.supplicant_scan_interval  and set it to 100. Though some prefer 50, so it is a scale up or scale down depending where you start, after testing to see drops stabilise. 

 

In thé hidden advanced menu set fragmentation threshold to 2306 and RTS threshold to 2307

 

I use KitKat at my firmware of choice. Basically google messes up firmare features with playservices  features. So it is hit and miss with troubleshooting devices since playservices revisions differ by Android build and  playstore release.

 

Since March, I have had 3 different playservices updates, each a wee better than before in operation. Google has always kept background services active since Kitkat introduction, and as of recent finally got their heads on straight, to remedy issues caused by it. Now playservices will shutdown background processes not being used, thus limiting redundant background traffic. Because my KitKat device is bottom of totem pole, play services may continually be buggy in the long haul. Never had so much trouble with Jellybean, but it won't be a problem once i move over to a pure Linux environment. Actually android is the worst os to use, if you want a clean (no google krappa data in background)  and trouble free environment.
